Despite their role in founding and defining the discipline of sociology, the field's classical theorists typically receive only cursory attention in standard introductory texts. Written specifically for undergraduate students, this supplemental text, Fred Pampel's Sociological Lives and Ideas brings to life the fundamental ideas of Karl Marx, Emile Durkheim, Max Weber, Georg Simmel, George H. Mead, and W.E.B. DuBois by placing them in the context of each theorists' biography. By exploring the lives and times of these key figures, students will gain a richer understanding of their intellectual legacies, as well as of the ways in which their work can be applied to current issues.

Vander Ven argues that college students rely on "drunk support." Contrary to most accounts of alcohol abuse as being a solitary problem of one person drinking to excess, the college drinking scene is very much a social one where students support one another through nights of drinking games, rituals and rites of passage.

2014 Lambda Literary Award Finalist: LGBT Nonfiction Breaks down the most commonly held misconceptions about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their lives In “You Can Tell Just by Looking” three scholars and activists come together to unpack enduring, popular, and deeply held myths about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, culture, and life in America. Myths, such as “All Religions Condemn Homosexuality” and “Transgender People Are Mentally Ill,” have been used to justify discrimination and oppression of LGBT people. Others, such as “Homosexuals Are Born That Way,” have been embraced by LGBT communities and their allies. In discussing and dispelling these myths—including gay-positive ones—the authors challenge readers to question their own beliefs and to grapple with the complexities of what it means to be queer in the broadest social, political, and cultural sense.

UNDERSTANDING SOCIETY: AN INTRODUCTORY READER, Fourth Edition, contains a collection of classic and contemporary sociological readings selected for their timeliness, diversity, and interest. The emphasis of this collection is on articles that students will both understand and also find intriguing.

The new articles were selected to engage student interest, to reflect the richness of sociological thought, and to add articles that address issues that have emerged since the publication of the last edition (such as the economic recession, the Haiti earthquake, and the increasing racial segregation of schools, to name a few). As always, the editors have included the top names in the field. Five themes run throughout the text: classical sociological theory, contemporary research, diversity, globalization, and the application of the sociological perspective.

Raised Up Down Yonder attempts to shift focus away from why black youth are “problematic” to explore what their daily lives actually entail. Howell travels to the small community of Hamilton, Alabama, to investigate what it is like for a young black person to grow up in the contemporary rural South. What she finds is that the young people of Hamilton are neither idly passing their time in a stereotypically languid setting nor are they being corrupted by hip-hop culture and the perils of the urban North, as many pundits suggest. Rather, they are dynamic and diverse young people making their way through the structures that define the twenty-first-century South. Told through the poignant stories of several high school students, Raised Up Down Yonder reveals a group that is often rendered invisible in society. Blended families, football sagas, crunk music, expanding social networks, and a nearby segregated prom are just a few of the fascinating juxtapositions.
